Entropic Words from Neilathotep

Wednesday, July 27, 2005


Ok, as promised/alluded to, here is my report on the show “No Reservations” hosted by Anthony Bourdain on the Travel Network.

This is basically the same show as “A Cook’s Tour” except it is an hour long, and it seems like he isn’t forced to do things he doesn’t want to. What I mean is he goes someplace and explores it’s culinary tradition. Or so it seems from the premier episode. In it he tried to show how France Does Not Suck, since France Sucking has become a popular Meme in the USA as of late. I am actually not sure how effective this was in that regards, but I have to say it was a bit more interesting that the Cook’s Tour trip to France with his brother.

The negatives were a bit too much cheesality, but I suppose I should expect that from him by now. The positives were that it seemed he was really into what he was doing in the episode, and he tried to show a side of France and French food that we don’t normally think about.

I’d probably watch it again, and I am reserving final judgement.
